Charli D'Amelio accidentally thanks fans for hashtag meant for Charli XCX
Charli D’Amelio has deleted a tweet after mistaking a hashtag from fans of Charli XCX as being for her.
The TikTok star suffered a slightly awkward blunder when she saw the hashtag #HereForCharli trending.
Thanking fans on Twitter, she wrote: ‘i am looking through the hereforcharli hashtag and oh my goodness you are all so sweet to me you have no idea how much your kind words warm my heart i am so lucky to have you all by my side!! i love you bebs.’
However, it turns out it was a hashtag for musician Charli XCX, after her close friend, producer SOPHIE died over the weekend.
Charli, 16, who boasts a following of more than 100 million on TikTok, has since deleted her tweet.
Boom Clap hitmaker Charli XCX, 28, was supported by fans after the loss of SOPHIE, also known as Sophie Xeon, who produced songs of hers including Vroom Vroom.
SOPHIE, who was also a musician in her own right, died aged 34 in a ‘sudden accident’, her reps confirmed this week.
A statement from her team read: ‘It is with profound sadness that I have to inform you that musician and producer SOPHIE passed away this morning around 4am in Athens, where the artist had been living, following a sudden accident.
‘At this time respect and privacy for the family is our priority. We would also ask for respect for her fanbase, and to treat the private nature of this news with sensitivity.
‘SOPHIE was a pioneer of a new sound, one of the most influential artists in the last decade. Not only for ingenious production and creativity but also for the message and visibility that was achieved. An icon of liberation.’
Charli XCX has not publicly spoken out about SOPHIE’s death.
Tributes from stars like Rita Ora, Sam Smith, and Nile Rodgers have poured in for the late musician.
